CASEing the Catty – CTC148 – Memories & More – Kits and cards

 CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop.
 
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble – or if you’ve hopped on over from the fabulous Rebecca Scurr – a big WELCOME! 
 
This week the CTC Crew is CASE-ing any of the Kits, or Memories & More projects – from either the Annual or the Holiday Catalogue!
 
 
As you know I love Memories & More and I love our Kits! So a tricky choice!
 
I also love Christmas – so decided to CASE a Watercolor Christmas Project Kit card using Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card pack – a perfect match!
The photo below shows my card sitting on the relevant pages from the Holiday Catalogue – Pages 14 and 33.
I’ve CASE’d the kit card in the top right hand corner of page 33.
Here is my card on its own.
A super quick and easy card.
I usually use metric here in New Zealand – but imperial measurements worked well with the Memories & More cards as the card sizes are 4″x6″ and 4″x3″. 
 
Here are the steps to construct the card:
  1. Cut a card base in Kraft. I cut the base at 8×6″ so I could score and fold it in half so it would be the same size as one of the large Memories & More cards. I used the 12×12″ Kraft cardstock –  which was an easy cut! If you were making several you could then get two 8×6″ bases and a 4×12″ – so 3 cards of 4×6″. The Kraft 12×12″ cardstock is available in the Merry Little Christmas cardstock pack –  a mixed pack with Old Olive – great for Christmas projects
  2. Adhere a 4×6″ card from the Merry Little Christmas pack to the card front. The one I used was the “Let’s be Jolly” card – but the words get covered!
  3. Trim the 3×4″ Lemon Lime Twist card to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2″ and adhere to front of card with glue or fast fuse.
  4. Stamp the sentiment from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set on to another of the 3×4″ Merry Little Christmas cards
  5. Adhere some Silver metallic ribbon to the back of the card  and then adhere to the card front with dimensionals.
  6. Add two or three of the ornament stickers from the Merry Little Christmas Card Pack! Two of mine were stuck straight onto the card. One I popped up on mini dimensionals.
  7. Adhere one of the Lemon Lime Twist offcuts to the inside of the card

Gotta love how all these things work together to make quick and easy – but still gorgeous – cards!
